Not a bad idea

It's well done, and has a good plan in it. All around not a bad time passer.

Very good game

Nice idea, and while the controls are rather difficult, it's a great game overall.

Good game, difficult to control

I liked this game - a very challenging little game, with some difficult controls that takes a while to get the hang of.

I've played it a few times and I think that the maion place that you're losing out is the lack of sound in the game - maybe the sounds of balloons bursting, the sounds of harps for people falling in love and of course the 'ow' for when people get stuck with arrows >:)

I think that the addition of levels would make this a much better game in itself, with the stats for the numbers of each coloured couple (and of course gender play, as to whether or not you're a heterophille or homophille, for the reltionship preferences.)

Cute idea

But the gameplay dynamcis, notably the arrows' ballistic characteristics, leave a bit to be desired. Some angles seem to be impossible to reach, and while that may add to the realism, the arrows also seem to be launched at different speeds. Plus it gets repetitive really fast, and a valentine's melody would have added depth to the game.

great idea!

i think the biggest thing missing was sound. popping balloons, the twang of the bow and bone grunching thud of the peole landing. and some music would have been good too. what about power ups? multi arrow? and hassards? emo people?

it was a good game, but it could be alot better. thanks though!
